It is known that catecholaminergic drugs can induce both locomotion and a late flexion reflex in spinalized animals. We studied spinal reflexes and locomotor activity in five adult spinal rats which had received a suspension of fetal noradrenergic (NA) neurons below the transection and in three control spinal rats. A rhythmical activity similar to the one of locomotion was regularly observed in three of the grafted rats held above a moving belt. In two of them, the step frequency was increased… CONTINUE READING
